The Haka Party Incident

  • Theatre

Per Auckland Theatre Company: Due to Auckland moving into COVID-19 alert level 3 as of 6am 28 February 2021 for at least seven days, the whole season of The Haka Party Incident will be rescheduled to new dates. When we know what those dates are we will advise ticketholders by email. Tickets for The Haka Party Incident have been taken off sale until new dates are confirmed.

The last New Zealand war took place in Auckland in 1979. It lasted three minutes.

The Haka Party Incident resurrects the eventful day when a group of University of Auckland engineering students rehearsing their annual tradition of a mock haka are confronted by the activist group, He Taua. Violence erupted that sent ripples through the nation and changed race relations in New Zealand forever.

Crafted by filmmaker and theatre director Katie Wolfe, this riveting play combines documentary and stagecraft to thrilling effect. Provocative, resonant and unforgettable – a not-to-be-missed theatre event.
